Chilis food.jpg


Would you like a side of obesity or heart disease with that?


That’s what you may be unwittingly asking for if you order any of the restaurant menu items recently “honored” with awards from the Center for Science in the Public Interest, or CSPI. Six meals, one cocktail and one dessert were crowned winners in the nonprofit organization’s latest annual Xtreme Eating Awards.

WeberClean™ Now on Sale for 35% OFF our already great price! That’s 55-57% off list price!


Compare WeberClean to the best-selling Contrad® 70 concentrated soaking solution.

The only difference is a one-gallon container instead of 5 liter. They work exactly the same! Clean by soaking alone with no manual scrubbing.

Removes virtually any contaminant from every surface – even dried proteins.  Works by soaking alone, with no need to scrub.  WeberClean is totally rinsable and leaves no residue.  It is phosphate and chlorine-free, and is biodegradable — used solutions may be disposed straight to drain.

Typically, a 2 – 5% solution is completely effective in soaking all labware 100% clean.  WeberClean is stable to the addition of bleach to create an effective cleaner/sanitizer mix.

WeberClean is an emulsion of anionic and nonionic surface active agents in an alkaline aqueous base.  It is a very effective solution and is a super value.

This may be a real bourbon but their marketing is 100% parody. 


H_D Bourbon.jpg

Hopes & Dreams, which satirizes stereotypical handcrafted whiskey marketing in its promotion, differentiates itself from other bourbon brands with such underwhelming pull-quotes as ‘Meh’ and ‘It’s good… enough,’ and is aimed at millennials, as well as any whiskey drinkers who don’t take themselves too seriously. They simply promise that it’s “old enough” and that you might enjoy it.

Craft beer is the strangest, happiest economic story in America



In an age of monopoly, in which a handful of companies control the bulk of the market, the craft brewing industry is bucking the trend. As recently as 2012, two duopolistic companies, Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors controlled almost ninety percent of beer production. Apart from their own “domestic” products, these two giants sought to consolidate their grip on the market by buying up successful smaller breweries. Thus, Blue Moon, Boddingtons, Pilsner Urquell, and Goose Island are all owned by one of these two mega-brewers.

This sort of industry consolidation troubles economists. Research has found that the existence of corporate behemoths stamps out innovation and hurts workers. Indeed, between 2002 and 2007, employment at breweries actually declined in the midst of an economic expansion. 

But in the last decade, something strange and extraordinary has happened.  Between 2008 and 2016, the number of new breweries rose by a factor of six, and the number of employees in the brewing industry rose by 120 percent. Even more incredibly, this sextupling in the number of new breweries and more than doubling of the workforce has come at a time when overall beer consumption in the U.S. has actually declined.
